Kiss Get Animated

Posted By on Thu, Apr 30, 2009 at 9:53 AM


First, Andrew W.K. gets his own show on Cartoon Network. Now, Kiss is getting animated for a cameo in this weekend's Nickelodeon special, The Fairly Oddparents: Wishology.

We don't want to give too much away, but Kiss members Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley appear in the three-part show, which airs at 8 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights.

Fairly Oddparents is a cartoon about a little boy whose wishes are granted by a pair of fairy godparents. It's a smart show, loaded with pop-culture references to everything from The Matrix to Star Wars to '80s new-wave bands.

The three-part special (each episode runs an hour, so expect some epic storytelling here) finds Timmy being named The Chosen One who must stop the Darkness from taking over the world.

And we're really not all that surprised by Kiss being turned into cartoon characters. That's pretty much been their gig for the past 30 years, hasn't it? —Michael Gallucci
